# 4/6/2013 - White to Draw

• #341

Yep, It probably came about due to the description of a tablebase position, for example, KRPKR, so it makes some sense for those who make tablebase algorithms to count up all the "letters" in that as 5-"man".

How is this a draw?  Black clearly wins with 2 passed pawns

two passed rook pawns its a draw the king goes to the corner blacks bishop can't control then he sacks his bishop for the h pawn the resulting endgame is a theoretical draw

You may want to read the rest of the thread. I put it into an endgame tablebase generator and let it run for a day and it determined it to be a forced win.

i guess it won for black the puzzle gave the wrong move for black though and black can avoid avoid the theoretical draw with kc7 rather than grabbing the pawn
